Attempted theft of fuel tank


At 11:30 pm on Sunday 4 Nov 2012, I heard loud shouts from my neighbours and went outside to investigate. They had seen a man lying underneath my vehicle, the man ran off when they shouted.

The suspect had unbolted the harnesses of my vehicle's fuel tank, cut all of the connecting pipes and fuel lines, and had dropped the tank down onto the road. The tank would have vanished in 5-10 minutes, if not for my neighbours.

The repair bill was R2400.00. This is the 4th incident in the same spot, worst being a stolen vehicle. Karma will surprise these guys soon enough.
